It’s where it all started, 31 Rue Cambon, Paris. Her first boutique, a salon for her customers and also her home.
The boutique is fabulous, it was everything I expected and more. The staff were friendly and accommodating and even though I was purchasing an item low in value compared to the majority of items Chanel sell, I could have been buying a £10,000 handbag – the service was amazing.
First of all I looked at the necklaces all the staff were wearing, a long chain of beads in black and silver with several silver Chanel logos, that doubled up when you wear them, they were beautiful but the cost started from 1,500 euros! So it was a no from me, but ladies a hugs incentive to go work for Chanel!
I treated myself to a brooch, something that I know I would wear for many years, the whole purchasing experience took about 30 mins from start to finish, it made me think that when your buying something so special, it should take time, less rushing. Service you will remember.
